Hundreds of Families will Attend Performance and Art Show March 1 at Trinity Catholic High School

NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO – February 22, 2012 – Third and Fourth Grade students from the eight Catholic elementary schools located in the Northeast Deanery of the Archdiocese of St. Louis will perform together at the 2nd Annual Fine Arts Night on Thursday, March 1, 7:00p.m. at Trinity Catholic High School (1720 Redman Road, St. Louis, MO 63138). The evening will feature song and band performances, speech team demonstrations and a display of student artwork from all grade levels.

Music and Art teachers have been working together to coordinate the evening, helping students learn the songs, practicing with them and collecting art projects for the display. An addition to the program this year is the speech team demonstration. “The students are very excited about performing and showing you their talents. This is such a wonderful opportunity to showcase what our students are capable of doing,” said Sue Heredia, speech coach. “We can tell you that when they enter high school, these students have poise, presence of speaking in front of people, and many continue to develop their talent by participating in their school plays.”

“Fine Arts Night is an excellent opportunity to showcase student talents and work, and for teachers to highlight curriculum in music and art” said Cara Koen, Director of Advancement for the Northeast Deanery Federation of Catholic Schools. “Bringing students and families from our eight schools together in this way has the added benefit of supporting our identity as one Catholic community.”
